Overdue 101 in 1001 Update

I haven’t updated this in MONTHS but I think there are several to update. If you want to see the complete list, there is a tab up there at the top called “101 in 1001.” Just click that. Let’s see where I stand now!

3. Watch 5 movies from this site (<- link). (1/5)

Many moons ago, Lauren and I got together to watch The Shop Around the Corner, which is number 94 on the list. For those of you who don’t know, this is the movie that You’ve Got Mail is based on. YGM is one of my all-time favorite movies and I was ashamed that I had never seen The Shop Around the Corner. So how does it measure up? We loved it. It was charming and sweet. And if you’ve memorized YGM like we have, you’ll noticed every little similarity. This is a movie I want to own.

39. Make a hard copy of my blog.

I realize this isn’t reasonable or even desired anymore. It’s just too long. As long as the internet is around, it’s accessible. So I need to replace this with something else. Ideas?

42. Organize the panty. (edited to add… this is supposed to say “PANTRY”… spellcheck didn’t show me my error since “panty” is a word)

I have done this. It’s been so long that it’s time to clean it again. We have weird pantries. They are narrow and deep. Who designs narrow and deep pantries??? Probably a man. One has shelves and doesn’t- it is this closet thing. They are dumb and I hate them. I got a white wire drawer set to go in the pantry without shelves and it’s done me well.

44. Find a place to pick berries.

Joy to the world!!!!! Stephen and I are doing this on Saturday. I have always wanted to pick berries and there is a place about 40 minutes away where I can do it! May 8 is the last strawberry picking day so I want to hurry up and get over there. I’m so excited! I plan to eat a lot of them, make some strawberry bread, and freeze a ton for smoothies and future usage. I hear this place also has other great produce so we’ll see what else we come up with! YAY!

46. Go to bed before 9:30 three times.

HA. Done. Pregnancy will do that to a girl!

73. Clean the carpet in the master bedroom.

Done. We had Stanley Steamer come out to clean our room and Rookie’s room. Rookie had a bout of explosive diarrhea while we were at work one day… I don’t want to talk about it. We had no choice but to steam the heck out of the floors. They looked great for about a week and then all the really old stains came right back up. So now my new goal is to get new carpet. I was hoping this would be a pre-baby goal but it’s looking like it won’t happen.

75. Eat at 10 new restaurants.

I’m not keeping track of this very well. I’m sure I’ve been to more. Most recently I went to Iron Works in Austin for some BBQ. It’s been around forever and I’ve seen it a million times. It was really good. Not as good as The Saltlick, but nothing really is. Oh and a few months ago I went to a Mexican restaurant called Loma Linda. DELICIOUS!

82. Take Rookie to the dog park.

We found a great dog park by our house. It is huge and has trees and a walking track. It’s great. We went pretty regularly for a couple weeks and then I almost died from an allergy attack so we decided to stay indoors for a while. We’ll go back once Houston decides not to be yellow anymore.

Not too bad. I still have a ways to go but I’ve made a pretty good dent in the list. Anyone else have a list that they are plowing though? Feel free to leave the link so we can all go visit.
